Stamping Out and Preventing Gender Based Violence in Zambia
Gender based Violence (GBV) cannot be eliminated without inclusion or integration of men in interventions that aim at fighting and reducing GBV in society. This is because boys and young men perpetuate the majority of the violence. In order to ensure integration of males in the fight of GBV, Sport In Action has been implementing the World Vision-led, five years USAID/DfID funded project, Gender Based Violence Survivor Support (GBVSS) project. The GBVSS project aims at changing social and gender norms amongst boys and young men aged 12 to 23 since October 2014 in six districts namely; Chingola, Kalomo, Monze, Mumbwa, Mpika, and Nyimba, targeting 84 schools and 178 community teams to change their cultural and social norms that promote GBV. Starting in October 2017, the project now includes adolescent girls and young women through the Girls In Action (GIA) sessions.
The local Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) and (Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD) office funds a second Girls in Action project, but this is implemented in Kabwe, Lusaka, and Livingstone districts only. Here the project aims at reaching 6500 young girls.
We also receive a grant from the South African regional office under the Pan Africa Project. We use this grant to implement and facilitate comprehensive sexual education in schools and communities.
